Subject: Be kind to the animals we kill!
A pretty strange short focuses on how we should all love our animals, which of course first focuses on how we kill them to make food and products, and THEN focuses on how we must love our pets and keep them happy. Drolly narrated bu Lowell Thomas, the film has some fascinating images, most notably of a woman's club learning how to bandage up a (terribly nervous) dog. This is an SPCA film?

Subject: Not as enjoyably corny as Part I...
This second part covers indifference toward animals. It is explained that a nail that should have been removed from the truck carrying cows, as it might skewer a cow and make that section of meat useless. Of course the cow feels nothing =)

It goes on to really trumpet the American Humane Society (proud sponsors), for improving the condition of animals. Goes deep into the history of the Society and is a lot more boring than the first half for this reason.

There's a bit more disturbing footage, this time of a stray dog barely strong enough to walk. Later he gets taken away to be put down.

It goes on to talk about how education is helping both children and adults treat animals better. In one bit a vet is shown, who looks suspiciously like the doctor from the first part.

All up not as funny by any means, but still worth a watch.
